Women Attorney Rainmakers: Born or Bred?

Monday, October 10, 2016   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Hannah Zuercher

After her Wahl Lecture keynote remarks the evening before, MWL is pleased to again welcome Patricia Gillette for a November 15th seminar entitled “Women Attorney Rainmakers: Born or Bred?

What makes one attorney more successful than another at bringing in business? Are there personal characteristics that impact our ability to deliver new business and if so, can those characteristics be learned? These are the types of questions that were addressed in the 2013 ground breaking research "The Rainmaking Study" initiated by Patricia Gillette.

Patricia will share the results of "The Rainmaking Study" and then discuss the findings with a panel of esteemed lawyers, who give out and bring in business.  As law firm and corporate leaders, the panelists will speak candidly about how they connect and build a successful business relationship.  Attendees will leave this presentation with new practical tips on how to approach business development so that their efforts are productive and impactful.

MWL is honored to welcome panelists:


Dani Deering, General Counsel, Lockheed Martin
Connie Lahn, Managing Partner, Barnes & Thornburg P.A. (Minneapolis)
Karin NelsenVice President of Legal and Human Resources, Minnesota Vikings
Kathlyn Noecker, Partner and Management Board Member, Faegre Baker Daniels

Please RSVP by Friday, November 11th, 2016. Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited.
